In the aftermath of the massive fire that ripped through six stores on Queens Boulevard, Sunnyside neighbors are standing up for their community.
Sunnyside business leaders have organized a GoFundMe campaign, the Sunnyside Fire Relief Fund, to raise money for the business owners and employees who have been affected.
In less than a week, the campaign has raised more than $86,000.
Cash donations from a fundraiser last night totaled $15,778. Other large donations came from Amin Siad, Fresh & Save Supermarkets ($2,000), Sunnyside Ballet Nutcracker Collection ($793) and Dazies Restaurant ($500).
You can help the campaign reach its goal of $100,000 by contributing to the online fundraiser, linked above.
